THOUGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 16 February 1923
THOUGHTS. • By 3ER?NDA. Seeing the children gatherijg, to the school. near 'where I reside has' `iut thoughts into my mind of the wonder ful system of free education that we have in this fair State of ours. A4 lowing my thoughts to wander back to my own early school days, I can remember attending a denominational school held in a barn ori the Plenity, where my parents had to pay for my schooling. The scale was a slidiig one, from 13/- per quarter up to L1. After a short period the National schools came into existence, but in the meantime the venue of my school had changed to a new school erected on the Plenty -road near to the May yield homestead, the land tbeing, part of the :Mayfield estate, on which the school was erected, being given as a, free gift by the late Moses Thomas. The curriculum in those days was much more simple, special stress be ing; given -to the four rules, viz., reading, writing grammar and arithl metic.

Bookies Barred. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 23 February 1923
Bookies Barred. " That no bookmakers or gambling be allowed in the Heidelberg park, and that the by-law be strictly en forced ~ was the substance of the motion proposed by Cr. Service at the Heidelberg council meeting on Tuesday evening, and seconded by Cr. Hannah. This was in consequence of a rumor that bookmakers were to be allowed to ply their calling at a fee of two guineas each at the sports and horse events which take place on Saturday next in aid of the Heidelberg State school. Cr. Winsor. (chairman *of the school committee) said they were doing their best for the children, and they had decided to cut out games of chance. They were within the law to permit betting, but there was opposition to it, and they had a notice on the programme that all betting was prohibited. Cr. Ball said bookmakers had no right to operate in the park, as it was not a registered racecourse. He was opposed to them being there. Rev. Alex. Hardie, who spoke on behalf of a deputation, said he was glad to...
DYES MADE FROM WASTE. SCIENCE AIDS INDUSTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 23 February 1923
DYES MADE FROM WASTE. SCIENCE AIDS INDUSTRY. - With the development of famine e.on Iitions in the dye industry of the United States, during the first year of the war came the question of what products, could be utilised for the manufacture of dyes. Not the, least interesting answer to the question is one recently reported. A certain coke-making concern had for years been dumping into Lake Mlichigan its slag and other refuse, supposing this stuff to be quite use Ieu.s 1tE chiancd 'hat tiee' resided' in ,Milwaukee, where its h=a"quarters are situated, a dye chemist of wide ex perience in England and Germany. Well acquainted with the treasured secrets of the German dye makers, he set himself the task of finding, raw materials forming a potential bfasis for an American dye industry. The cubmarine coke dump came to his at tention, and he went to work on this material. After considerable expenimenting, he succeeded in producing a dye from the slag. The possibilities were brought to the at...

Correspondence. RAILWAY EXTENSION. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 23 February 1923
Correspondence. RAILWAY EXTENSION. TO THE EDITOR OF THIC ADVERTISER. Sir,-A couple of your correspon dents have stated that Hurstbridge is progressing. So it is-like a snail. With electric trains and a good train service soon to be within six :miles of us, we should be ashamied of the fact that the railway terminus is not yet a township, but only a bush village with neither drainage, water supply nor footpaths. It is a standing joke among week enders. There are no signboards to show where our roads lead to, and many week-enders return to " Puffing Billy," vowing that they will never venture out among the way backs any more. Our best scenery is inaccessible, and because we are such simple waybacks we haven't yet got a workmen's train in the morning. After all our best scenery and our richest land is beyond Hurstbridge, and Hurstbridge will never progress as it should until our line is extended. The Railway Standing Committee is visit ing this and surrounding districts next month, and...

Diamond Creek. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 23 February 1923
Diamond Creek. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) It is with great regret that I have to record the death of Mr J. :Cowling, a well known, and highly respected citizen of Diamond Creek He arrived from England years ago and settled down in business at Hawthorn, and after about 25 years in business he retired. He hurried to catch the train on Tuesday morning, and he took his seat and expired in the train shortly afterwards. The body was removed to the morgue. I noticed, when passing through Montmorency by train, that there is what appears to be a ticket box on the clearing made for a station, and it is to be hoped than we will soon have a platform. I also:iiticed the name of the station ozn the fence, so the, folks must keep going and they' will get an up to date station; 'which will be a great boon'. The Hurstbridge stationmaster (Mr Crow) has been granted his ap plication for a. transfer to Croxton, and Mr Phillips is relieving at the local station.

A Motor Smash. [Newspaper Article] — Advertiser — 23 February 1923
A Motor Smash. "It was a narrow escape,' is the remark made by people who cross what is known as Cox's bridge, close to Hurstbridge, as they see a wreck ed motor waggon within five feet of a 15ft. embankment. It appears that, between 7 and S p.m. on Wednesday Mr Walker, of Greensborough, was on his way to Queenstown with a load of produce. He turned the cor ner by Dorset House (Hurstbridge) at a good pace, and as he ran down to Cox's bridge (half a mile from. the town) the motor waggon veered to the right and struck the post of the fencing. It struggled past seven panels, colliding' in five places. It eventually came in contact with a wattle tree, which checked its mad career, and the waggon is now with in five feet of the bank of Cherry Tree creek, the front axle being bro ken, one wheel mutilated, the engine out of gear, and other damage done. Fortunately M?r Walker was not hurt. He attributes the accident to the vagaries of the steering gear. Some time ago he had an accident whic...
